Entry requirements for undergraduate courses

You can apply for undergraduate programmes either through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) or the Common Application. Please use only one method of applying. If you are using UCAS to apply for other UK universities, please also make your University of Bristol application through UCAS and do not use the Common Application.

The UCAS code name and number for this University is BRISL B78.

Candidates who have completed the Eritrean Secondary Education Certificate Examination (ESECE), the Eritrean Secondary Education Certificate Examination (technical courses) or the Ethiopian School Leaving Certificate (prior to independence) with good grades will also need to complete an approved Foundation Programme in order to be considered for entry to the first year of our Bachelor degree courses.

Candidates who have gained a Bachelor degree from the University of Asmara with good grades will be considered for entry to the first year of relevant Bachelor degree courses.

Please note that competition for places at Bristol is very strong, so the achievement of the qualifications listed above does not guarantee that an offer will be made. We aim to get you a response as quickly as possible to help you plan your studies.

Entry requirements for postgraduate programmes

You can apply online for all our postgraduate programmes.

The standard requirement for entry to a taught masters programme at Bristol is an undergraduate (Bachelor) degree that is equivalent to a UK Upper Second Class degree (also known as a 2:1).

Candidates with a four year bachelors degree from a recognised university with a GPA of 4.0 out of 5.0 or 3.2 out of 4.0 would be considered for entry onto our masters programmes.

The Bachelor degree from the University of Asmara, even with good grades, is unfortunately not sufficient for entry to postgraduate programmes at Bristol.
